** In "Treehouse of Horror I" ("Hungry Are the Damned"), the whole Simpson family are taken captive by Kang and Kodos. They're actually very nice and hospitable to the Simpsons, and treat them to a grand dinner feast. However Lisa is suspicious, and she finds a cookbook entitled ''How to Cook Humans'' ([[ShoutOut spoofing]] the famous ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' episode "ToServeMan"). [[spoiler:However, Kang and Kodos blow off some dust to reveal the book's title as ''How to Cook '''for Forty''' Humans'', and then they kick out the Simpsons for their rudeness.]]
** In "Treehouse of Horror VII" ("Citizen Kang"), Kang and Kodos abduct Homer Simpson while he's out fishing. Though instead of eating Homer or [[AnalProbe rectally probing]] him as he initially feared, the two aliens simply [[TakeMeToYourLeader ask to know who the leader of Earth is]]. Homer replies that it's US President UsefulNotes/BillClinton, though he may be replaced by Senator Bob Dole in the then-current 1996 presidential election. So Kang and Kodos abduct Clinton and Dole in order to [[TheyLookLikeUsNow impersonate both of them]], and they run in the election. [[spoiler:[[TheBadGuyWins They successfully]] {{take over| the world}} [[AlienInvasion America (and the Earth)]].]]
** In "Treehouse of Horror IX" ("Starship Poopers"), the Simpsons discover that Homer is not the biological father of Maggie, who is really a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-alien hybrid]] that was conceived when Marge was abducted by Kang; who, after trying and failing to seduce her, blasted her with a {{ray gun}} that [[MarsNeedsWomen made her pregnant with his offspring]]. Kang arrives with Kodos to kidnap Maggie, which leads to a fight with Homer, [[ItMakesSenseInContext which they try to settle on]] ''Series/TheJerrySpringerShow''.

* Wild animals captured by humans, examined and tagged, then released again. [[HumansAreCthulhu From their perspective]] this trope might be close to TruthInTelevision (and one ComicBook/TheFarSide strip uses this very setup).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/PeopleOfEarth'' is half {{Dramedy}} about a support group for abductees (or "Experiencers", as not all of them view the experience negatively), and half WorkCom about the aliens who've been abducting them.
